The two dancehall heavy hitters link up for their first collaboration released last weekend. The track was produced by Damage Musiq, who has produced a number of tracks for Tommy Lee last year including some of his biggest hits. “big up my friends them, me love them jah, protect them jah,” Sparta sings over a dancehall beat.
Masicka comes through with a killer verse while showcasing his lyrical prowess. “From them diss one a we them diss all, Crux ready fi go defend it no care how it small, Some a we a smoke some a we a play ball, No a we no joke from yo diss the rain fall,” the Genahsyde leader spits.
Both Tommy Lee Sparta and Masicka had a big year last year with both deejays dropping songs that dominate dancehall airwaves throughout the year. The Mobay deejay has already hinted at his plans to push his career even further in 2018 with the release of his debut album through Sean Kingston‘s label Time Is Money Entertainment. Listen the new single “Real Link” below.
Cardi B is dominating Billboard Hot 100 to kick off her New Year.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper became only the third artist in history and the first rapper to have their first three Billboard Hot 100 songs to chart in the top ten simultaneously. The only other two artists to achieve this are Ashanti and The Beatles, according to Billboard. Cardi B joined the elites among artists last year when her debut single “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” topped the chart making her the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill in the late 1990s to top the chart with a solo record.
Now Cardi B is making more history for herself once again on the most recognized music chart on the planet, the Billboard Hot 100. Her song with G-Eazy and ASAP Rocky, “No Limit” jumps one place this week to No. 4, while Migos’ “MotorSport” with Cardi B and Nicki Minaj holds firm at No. 7 on the chart this week. That’s two singles in the top ten where she is a guest artist on, but her debut single “Bodak Yellow” saw some resurgence over the holidays and jumped two places from No. 12 to 10 on the chart.
“What a great way to start my Year.Thank you Lord,” Cardi B wrote on Instagram. “Only you and i know how much i pray to you.These last few weeks been too much for me but my Lord always find a way to uplift me .Thank you to my fans ,DJS ,Team for the support .Thanks to all the artist who featured me In these songs and thanks guys for showing my second single BARTIER CARDI some love I love you.”
It’s very much possible that she can achieve four songs simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 if her new single “Bartier Cardi” continues to gain momentum. The song made its debut on the chart at No. 14 and over the holidays it was a top trending song on some major streaming platforms. Further down on the chart, Cardi B can be found on another song “La Modelo” with latin singer Ozuna which entered the chart at No. 52. “LA MODELO HAS ALSO ENTER THE HOT 100 at number 52 .Thank you guys for the support this honestly one of my favorite songs .Thank you @ozunapr por darme la oportunidad,” Bardi wrote on Instagram.
What a great way to start my Year.Thank you Lord .Only you and i know how much i pray to you.These last few weeks been too much for me but my Lord always find a way to uplift me .Thank you to my fans ,DJS ,Team for the support .Thanks to all the artist who featured me I?n thesee songs and thanks guys for showing my second single BARTIER CARDI some love ???????????I love you
Harry Toddler is the latest dancehall artist to fall victim to the crime wave gripping Jamaica.
Following the murder of two dancehall artists in recent weeks, former Scare Dem Crew deejay Harry Toddler was robbed at gunpoint over the holidays. The artist broke the news on social media last weekend telling his fans that he was held up by two gunmen in the Tower Hill area of ST. Andrew. He said that the men took US$500, JM$30,000, a laptop, phones, and his passport.
Toddlers says he doesn’t care about the cash, but is more interested in getting back his passport so that he can travel to fulfill his contractual obligations overseas as an entertainer. He also said that he has a bunch of unreleased music on the stolen laptop and is pleading with criminals to return the computer and his passport. “If the man them can just run back the passport and the laptop, I don’t care about the money,” he said. The artist said the money was for his daughters who are living overseas.
“Jah know star as a artist mi can’t even move around in my own country,” he added. Over the last few months, dancehall artists Mineral Boss and Unicorn were shot and killed in separate incidents in Jamaica. The local entertainment fraternity is currently on edge over the targeting of artists.
Tamar Braxton went lights out on Instagram after denying that she is back with her estrange husband Vincent Herbert.
The R&B singer was spotted on Tuesday arriving at the LAX with Herbert and their son and that triggered rumors that they are back together. Tamar quickly took to her Instagram to shot down the reports that she is back with her ex after getting him arrested on Christmas Day. She claim that the arrest was caused by a heated argument due to jealousy and intoxication. Fast forward to the second day in the new year and they were spotted traveling together like most civilize family do.
“NOPE! Sorry! Not together but since the craziness the other day, we DID agree to create a better environment for son!!” she wrote on IG. “P.s. we also agreed not to speak on this anymore in public after this! My son can read and he’s not dumb #2018goals #praymystrengthinthelord.”
After writing that on Instagram she then deleted her account. If you go on her profile on IG this is the page you will come across “user not found.” Perhaps a social media break is the best thing for her right now because you just can’t stop the media from writing about your personal life as a celebrity.
